Seattle is playing poorly in its first season in history, but it's hardly a letdown because the NHL newcomer needs time to settle in and strengthen its squad. The Krakens suffered nine straight losses in December and January, completely ruining their playoff chances, but they're slowly beginning to pick up the pace now. In their last four games, the team managed three wins and one loss. Although their successes against Chicago and San Jose did not surprise them much, their triumph against Florida was a sensation. Unfortunately, Seattle remains in the next-to-last place in the Western Conference standings.
Nashville is having a great regular season and even claiming the lead. Everything was going too well for the Predators, but they still suffered a slump in mid-January, losing four games in a row. It seemed to be very difficult for John Hines to rectify the situation, but things turned out different. First, representatives of the state of Tennessee easily defeated Winnipeg (5:2) and then strengthened the success by beating Detroit (4:1). Once again, the Nashville offence began to work while the defence improved, which allowed them to count on good results. The Predators are now in third place in the Western Conference standings, but they are already six points behind the leader.
Expert Betting Tips
Seattle and Nashville are currently at different ends of the Western Conference standings. While the Krakens are in the bottom half of the table and no longer have any serious challenges, the Predators are in third place and could even challenge for the lead. John Hines' side seemed to be in crisis, but recent games have made it clear that the problems are over. Of course, the visitors should pick up two points in the upcoming confrontation, so we suggest betting on Nashville's victory for 1.90.
Seattle and Nashville are the two teams that have been producing a lot of goals on most occasions. In other words, the Krakens have now scored 258 goals (6.29 goals per game average) in 41 regular-season games, while the Predators have produced 252 goals (5.86 goals per game average) in 43 games. Moreover, the only head-to-head encounter between the opponents was also rich in goals (4:3). As a result, we suggest betting on a total over 5.5 for 1.87.
Matt Duchene is a forward who has made a name for himself for a long time. In the 2013/14 season, playing for Colorado, he scored 73 points (20 goals + 53 assists) in 73 games. Since then, the Canadian has been far from a scoring-per-game figure every year, and he's looked worse with each new championship. The 31-year-old striker is only now finally beginning to find himself, displaying his former efficiency. In 39 games this regular season, he's already scored 38 points (19 goals + 19 assists), confirming his excellent form. In that situation, we suggest betting on Matt Duchene total over 0.5 for 2.75.
